AMC announced today that Into the Badlands will not continue past its current third season. The news was somewhat expected, as it has been nearly two years since its last renewal and the cable network has been mum regarding its future during that time.

The martial arts drama premiered in 2015 with a six-episode run that fared well, garnering generally positive reviews and solid ratings. An expanded 10-episode season followed in 2017, but saw weakening viewership despite continued critical praise. Season 3 debuted last year with an even larger order of 16 episodes, but with audience numbers falling even further, the likelihood of a fourth season became less and less of a reality.

The final eight episodes of Into the Badlands begin airing on Sunday, March 24 at 10:00pm before continuing in their regular Monday night time slot on March 25.
